Celebrate Earth Day with the Webster Public Library

20 Apr

This Thursday, April 22 is Earth Day, and the Webster Public Library is taking the opportunity to help everyone help our Earth.

To celebrate Earth Day, the library is inviting everyone to bring in recyclable materials, which they’ll collect and turn over to the appropriate agencies. Not only will doing so keep these materials out of the landfills, but many of them can be reused almost immediately in our very own community.

The materials they’re looking for include:

  • bubble wrap and packing materials for Bella’s Bumbas
  • eyeglasses and hearing aids for the Webster Lions Club
  • ink cartridges, cell phones and tablets for the Friends of WPL fundraising program (no computers, please)
  • wrapping paper tubes, tissue paper and movie candy boxes for the WPL children’s program
  • used books for WPL book sales
  • magazines to share
  • road maps for crafts
  • seeds for the library’s seed catalog

You can drop off any of these items at the library on Earth Day, Thursday April 22, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

While you’re at the library, don’t forget to check out the Art Gallery Wall. After taking a long break during the pandemic, it’s back again, and this month features Webster resident Mary Coy. Her display, called “Two Passions,” features digital bird drawings/paintings and aluminum relief creations.

The gallery will be updated every month, featuring photography or artwork by Webster residents.

The Webster Public Library is located at 980 Ridge Rd., at the back of Webster Plaza.
